Book Description

Standards for the Preparation of Literacy Professionals, 2017 Edition sets forth the criteria for developing and evaluating preparation programs for literacy professionals. Developed by literacy experts across the United States, the standards focus on the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary for effective educational practice in a specific role and highlight contemporary research and evidence-based practices in curriculum, instruction, assessment, and leadership.

The Standards, 2017 include standards for nine literacy professional roles, which are organized into five categories: Specialized Literacy Professionals (reading/literacy specialist, literacy coach, literacy coordinator/supervisor), Classroom Teachers (pre-K/primary, elementary/intermediate, middle/high school), Principals, Teacher Educators, and Literacy Partners. The standards address the need for a broader definition of literacy beyond reading to include writing, speaking, listening, viewing, and visually representing in both print and digital realms.

Colleges, universities, community colleges, other educator preparation program providers, states, districts, and pre-K–12 school administrators can use Standards, 2017 to guide initial and advanced licensure program development, certification, professional development, and program evaluation of literacy professional preparation.
